Joooooooose! We were beyond stoked when we found out that we snagged Nectaron as our hop for the NZ Hops Brew Challenge. Not since Simcoe have we used such a complete hop, and what better way to highlight that completeness then a Modern DIPA.
Get ready for a bucket load of the eponymous nectarine on the nose. Extra stone fruits are then backed up with highlights of tropical fruits and a touch of lime citrus. We delivered these juicy characters over a soft and creamy malt base with a hint of white pepper bitterness, for balance. The alcohol helps to tie it all together and allowed us to deliver a huge 17gL ddh.
Front, mid and finish, this beautiful hop really does have it all.
